    This level of malicious conduct should result is this company being literally taken to the cleaners. (Pun intended)

    VW gassing the world, seems old habits die hard. Should be a meme
    If at first you don't succeed, dont bother taking up sky diving.
    This unit is portable when carried.
    it wasn't a normal cookie, i figured that out 45 minutes into my exam.

      The requirement was that they pass the test.
      They passed the test.

      Problem is with test not VW.
      Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

        This will have some huge ripple effect throughout the world. I could be wrong thinking this but it could potentially send VW broke

          its interesting VW dont even seem to be trying to defend themselves. the CEO has fallen on his sword and the company is opening the raincoats to investigators and preparing its finances for multi billion dollar repercussions.

          i thought they might have tried finding similar smart systems used by other manufacturers that make available to the driver high performance modes, automated programmed vehicle configurations that are different to those used during testing (and then arguing industry wide common practice). hsv bi modal exhaust systems immediately springs to mind.

            This needed to be quoted for extra credit, well done.

              When I first heard they had done this I thought: "that was really clever, I wonder how common it is."

                Every bike ever has a lean spot, riiiiiiiight about where they test.

                Really, what's the difference.

                I personally don't get the fuss.
                The greatest excitement comes from besting who you were yesterday.

                  My golf has a flat spot in 4th approx 50km/h. I wonder if it is linked.

                      The BMW they tested at the same time performed as expected so they are capable of doing it.

                        Nearly every other manufacturer does this (Aside from the one bmw they tested it seems)

                          Perhaps, it only happens when I feather the throttle on slowly. The gti boots when I drive with a lead foot.

                              So everyone is impressed at a group of Earth community members shitting up our collective air in an environment where sustainability is a real concern?

                              These people have delibrately avoided laws designed for the future of our race. They did so for profits only.

                              This is the definition of evil and may the universe repay them in kind.
